So.. I just built a Ryzen gaming PC with a very capable GTX 1080 ti, and so far after playing BF1 I think my aiming is more accurate on the PS4 Pro with XIM. There's no comparison with graphics and frame rates, but I'm definitely more accurate with XIM. Why is this?? And if I can't figure out how to improve the aim feel on PC, can the XIM be used on PC through a controller?

I use the g502 at 12k dpi. I have the BF1 mouse sensitivity at 2% and zoom sensitivity at 35%. Windows mouse sensitivity is set to 6, and all accelerators are turned off.

i guess because of the aim assist? do you use it in BF1?

if so just connect your xim to the pc and pla BF1 with the "controller"
the game thinks you use a controller but you actually use the xim, of course will all the benefits such as higher resolution and other stuff

Normally I can't stand aim assist and disable it whenever possible. I don't think it's the aim assist, it's the actual aiming precision when I use the XIM. Like, it just feels so good. But maybe I'm just so used to how XIM feels? I really don't know lol. I got the PC feeling a little better, but I'm going to test playing through the controller with XIM when I get back home.

Maybe it was a curve? Did you have that whilst playing on Xim? I don't know a lot about them except they can be a huge advantage or a detrimental setback

I think I have some boost applied, and steady aim. Other than that it's the stock curve

I got the DS4 controller working in game when plugged in by itself. When everything is plugged in through the XIM, the controller will not turn on. The KB and mouse light up, but not the controller. Is there a special driver to get the XIM working for PC? I did some searching around the forums but didn't find anything.

It's called muscle memory. You've played so much with the XIM, anything else feels bad. I know the feeling. XIM does a great job, even without aim assist. I used to play BO2 on PC with the XIM, even though it didn't have aim assist. I was just so used to it.

That being said, it's hard to beat native mouse input.

I think that's most likely it. I have been pretty much exclusively playing on console with XIM for years now. After playing a few hours on PC the aiming is beginning to feel alright. After a few more days of PC gaming I'm going to play BF1 on PS4 and see how it feels.

Fyi, theres a mouse fix for windows. Apparently even if you put the mouse on 6, the windows has a curve built in causing some acceleration. Plus make sure enhance pointer is off. http://donewmouseaccel.blogspot.com/2010/03/markc-windows-7-mouse-acceleration-fix.html?m=1

Thanks! Just installed it :)


Also, over the past week I have almost entirely adjusted to the feel of PC gaming. I guess it just took some time to re-learn my mouse movements.
